THE annual Police Charity Golf Day was not only a lot of fun, it was again a windfall for the Coolum Surf Life Saving Club, with $2900 raised to help keep our beaches safe.
The golf day was one of the first fundraisers of the season hosted by the club's Summer Surf Girl entrant Kate Norman.
"It's an amazing start," Kate said.
"I can't thank all the police enough for their contribution.
"It's great to get such good support from the local community. It means a lot to us to get the recognition as well."
Senior Sergeant Hardy Wirth thanked the community for its support and local businesses, including Traveltime Peregian, Mitre 10, Woolworths, Coles and IGA for their donations of prizes and supplies.
The Jupiters Summer Surf Girls have become the public face of life saving, raising funds for local clubs and awareness of the life saving movement.
The program has been running annually since 1964 and in that time has raised more than $12.5 million for surf clubs within Queensland.
